Horsetail Falls

This is going to be the last hike for a few weeks since my husband is scheduled to work the next few weekends. :( Sad face. She here goes nothing.
Our hike today is the Horsetail falls, Ponytail falls trail. I really enjoyed this hike because of the many water falls that were very close together and easy to hike to, even with that though, the trail was steep and very rocky. I thought a few times I was either going to fall or twist my ankle. So, if you have bad ankles (Like I apparently do) you will want to be very careful walking this trail.
Before We started our hike, we took our customary trip to vista point to go to the bathroom so I will never have to experience the four mile pee, ever again. Not a good experience. Below is a picture of my husband taking a picture of the Columbia Gorge from Vista point.
For the first time ever the balcony was open at Vista Point while I was there. It was pretty cool and you could see so much more from up there. Hey Jason, smile!
 Didn't get any good pictures of Horsetail Falls but Ponytail falls was way cooler. The trail takes you behind the falls where you can take a picture from behind. WAY COOL!

We had a lot of fun on this hike and all though I forgot to tape my toes and got a blister, it was totally worth it and would do it all over again in a flash.

Enjoy the rest of these photos and remember, life is what you make it. Stay thirsty my friends!

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
